Time is slowly approaching.
One week, 2 days left. But hey, whose counting?
Due to a soccer game at the high school, my speed workout on the the track was revised to fartleks instead. Since I didn't I didn't have my Garmin I had no idea of my pace as I did 2 minutes on, 1 min jog. You know, its kind of nice not running with the Garmin. I was lost without it but it was still nice.
Our Ragnar team still needed 2 runners so while out running, when a runner crossed my path I had to ask him if he was running. Yes, crazy lady on the loose chasing other runners. What a better way to find a runner while out running? It turned out that Coach Dean had already filled the positions and we didn't need the runner after all. The nice thing about Ragnar is that it has helped distract me from the upcoming marathon.
My weight is fluctuating and I'm probably eating too much during the taper. At least I'm not feeling like I'm ALWAYS hungry like a couple weeks ago. Did you know they say 1lb a minute for a marathon? Lose 5 lbs and gain 5 minutes. There may be some truth to that but your endurance and fitness play a bigger part. What is your opinion of the 1 min per lb in the marathon/30 seconds in a half?
